WE CREATE HAPPY, HEALTHY SMILES
Dental implants are a permanent option many patients are now opting for over alternative tooth replacement choices. Dental implants may be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth in the form of an implant denture. A dental implant is a small titanium post that is placed in the jawbone under the gumline. This post will form the foundation for the crown or denture that will be placed upon it after healing from the placement surgery. With necessary maintenance and regular dental visits, implants can last a lifetime.
Dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth. They are designed to look, feel, and function like real teeth. They also provide excellent long-term value and are an incredible investment in overall oral health due their high success rate and the advanced implant placement technology currently being used. In addition, dental implants preserve bone and natural teeth that may be affected by other types of tooth replacement treatment.
Dental implants may be right for you if you have:
- One or multiple missing teeth.
- Older dental treatment that may need repair or replacement.
- Ill filling dentures.
- Bite, chewing or pain problems due to a missing tooth or teeth.
The time required to receive dental implant treatment depends on the number of implants being placed and healing time. Your dentist will give you an idea of the time frame to expect during your initial consultation, and you will visit the practice after surgery to check healing progress. The only way to know if dental implants are right for you is to schedule a consultation with our dentists to discuss your specific concerns and begin the treatment planning process.
